How to Use Landscape Lighting for Your Maryland Yard

Posted on: April 14, 2014

Do you want your yard to look as beautiful at night as it does during the day? Then you should consider using landscape lighting for your Maryland yard. But, like most landscaping features, you should have a plan prior to installing your landscape lights. Do you know what types of fixtures you want? Do you know what combination of uplighting and downlighting you want? Are you sure your paths will be properly lit? These are all important conversations to have before you start the installation process.

Planning Your Fixtures

Where do you want your lights? Do you want them to point at your landscape features? Or do you simply want them to illuminate the path around you? Areas where we can install fixtures include your:

  • Deck
  • Porch
  • Yard
  • Patio
  • Paths
  • Pool deck
  • And more!

Each area requires slightly different lights. Porch or deck lights are more likely to be taller—almost lamp post-like—in order to give a fuller area of light. On the flip side, lights for paths are going to be shorter and closer to the ground. Lighting that fixates on your landscape, however, is a different thing entirely.

Uplighting vs. Downlighting

When you want your landscape features to really stand out, uplighting and downlighting are the way to go. Uplighting are lights that are on the ground that face upward to shine on landscape elements, while downlights are lights that shine down.. By combining the two together, you can turn your yard into the talk of the neighborhood. We can integrate landscape lighting smoothly with the rest of your yard’s landscape design, highlighting key elements such as trees, shrubs, and walkways. Not only will this make your landscape attractive, but it will also increase the security of your home.
